Thanks, Dennis. You mention valid points.

Depending on your application, I'd argue over spending a little more time on UI tests if your time is very limited, because it will cover more than just the backend.

I didn't look it this way. Agreed.

Also, I would add that keeping your tests running fast is essential. Minimize overhead like too many database connections, mock external services when it makes sense, etc. If your tests are too slow, devs will stop paying attention to them and your test suite will break down quickly.

Good point. I should have included this. :)
